Forum: texts Subject: Server not found - Technical problem or my own fault?

For a few months I have been downloading good books from this site. Great!

It works well until about last week.
Quite often I cannot get through to the "http" page where I usually find the djvu book link I want. There is an error page which reads something like this,

Cannot find "ia360902.us.archive.org" Error - Server cannot be found

But at another time I may get through to the page I want.

Is the Server of "archive" too busy to be found, or is it because something's wrong with my computer?

Thanks.

Are you accessing the Archive from China or somewhere else?

Yes, you got it. From China.

Zuoguan,

It is most likely the connection from the P.R.C.; I have similar problem when I visit my family in Central Asia. The fact that you can get through in some cases indicates that it is not being blocked, but depending on where you are in the P.R.C. you may have a problem with the connection being unreliable. Usually universities have better connections, but that is not always the case.
